What strategies or tactics will you use meet your learning objective?
- Audio tactic, consists in listening to songs and doggerels, so that you can get used to it by repeating them over and over until it comes familiar to you. Songs are a great way of real life languages and you can use them to improve your language skills and as seen that the emotional memory is the most functional one, it proves to be the best way to do it. You can subdivide the process in several steps:
Step one: You can start with a doggerel that you can choose from the net, for example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hzBus2CWmR4.
Step two: This step could be devided in other sublevels, to mean that you can choose songs based on their speed and length. For example:
sublevel A songs like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVGOyYyWxiA
sublevel B you can try to choose more rithmyc, structured and fast songs like rap songs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uelHwf8o7_U).
Step Three: ment to be the hardest one as seen that at this point you have acquired a certain familiarity you are ready to go on your own by repeating by yourself all the things you have memorized without an instrumental base and by starting to learn mouthfuls of various type.

-Video tactic, consist in having online lessons like this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AVYfyTvc9KY, for a better understanding of the grammar. The first learning process we know as children is the associative one between image and sound, a kind of learning based on the experience. We can find on the web, video tools which show us everyday situation explained and subtitled or cards game (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MpK3oPYK6GU). In addition, for a more comfortable and fast way to search for word you don't understand, you can download the app "Reverso context", which is one of the most complete.
-Combined audio and video tactics, by watching films and TV series with subtitles in original language so that you can translate simultaneously what you don't understand until you don't need to do it anymore. My own advice is to acting on original actor voices and memorizing quotes you like most because its good training the speaking part and the memory. It is necessary proceed slowly. It's advised to start with movies or TV series in english subtitled in your mothetongue language and in a second time subtitled in english so that, once you understand the point of the episode, we can associate the phonetic to the writing. After doing that, to acquire more familiarity you can deactivate the volume and play yourself the script reading the subtitles even more times the same phrase until you realize you play it with confidence. At this point, subtitles for the ongoing episode are not necessary anymore because if you watch it from the top you see that you can understand without using them. Now you can start another episode and so on until you have developed a vocabulary complete enough in order that you don't need to resort to the transcription of the language to understand. For this work is recommended to use the legal streaming service Netflix, that allows to watch a wide variety of TV shows, movies and documentaries.
Let's play a game, in this link you will find some of the most famous TV series, the one which will catch your eye first will be the first you'll choose to start this learning program: https://www.slideshare.net/mobile/SaraRobertazzi/power-point-tecnologie
What is your deadline or timeline for carrying out your strategies/tactics?
There are no guide lines. Each one of us has different times to learn.
What is the evidence that you indeed did what you said you will do? Remember to share your learning discoveries.
The evidence you can use to prove what you learnt could be a certificate or simply the fact you can hold a conversation with someone who speak English.
How will you know it was the right thing to do in order to accomplish your learning objective? How will you judge your evidence? Will someone like an expert, your colleagues, or your teacher judge your evidence? Will you reflect on and judge the usefulness of your learning? If not someone, then what will be your process for validating your evidence?
My evidence will be judged from those who will choose to use it. A certificate is going to be necessary for validate it.
